Early in the morning back on Nov. 17, 2018, Loretta Williams was shot and killed in her home in Cove. Her soon-to-be ex-husband, 71 year old Ronald Lee, was later arrested. Lee has pled not guilty to murder and conspiracy to commit murder. He’s been held in the Union County Jail since his arrest last February. A bail hearing was held on August 27th, when the court ordered Lee to continue to be held without bail. A trial date has not yet been set. When it is finally scheduled, the trial is expected to last at least a month.
